- As you can expect someone with sleep apnea isn’t going to sleep the whole night through without interruption. Sleep Fragmentation is common in other sleep disorders besides sleep apnea but its effects are probably greatest with OSA.
- If you have sleep apnea you can expect a drop in energy and a drop in your sex life. Erectile dysfunction is also common with sleep apnea patients.
- Without the deep sleep that helps rest the body and revive the brain, your memory will be adversely affected.
- Sleep apnea patients have a higher risk of strokes.
- One of my doctors explained why he thought that depression was common among sleep apnea sufferers. “You would be depressed too if you haven’t sleep for years.”
- The lack of oxygen caused by the blockage of the airway in your throat is bad news for your brain which depends on that oxygen.
- Last but not least sleep apnea patients have a greater chance of getting a heart attack than anyone.
